Default Would you accept being locked in an empty room...

... On an island with no internet, TV or friends and without seeing anyone for a whole year for $10 Millions?

You would be provided with necessary food and all the necessary stuff to survive, just totally cut off from society in an empty room with no noise.

This is a question we got asked in one of our college classes for a study

Yes.

I'm sure I would definitely agree with it at first but it would take some work staying sane. It would be constant self-reminders and thinking about the $10 million that is coming to me. Oh and this cannot be recorded or broadcast in any form. I don't want my singing and ranting on day 306 to be seen by anyone else.

Is this a trick question.

10 million dollars, AND an experience that would give you perspective you would otherwise never be able to gain?


Who is saying no to this?? I'd be chillin with Wilson all day up in dat bitj








edit: oh shit, reading comprehension ftl. just noticed it said empty ROOM. not just fun in the sun on a deserted island.


actually i dont know if i'd do it in that case.

I'm pretty sure the point of the question is that you don't have access to said items.

Only items necessary to survival, like food, shelter, toiletries, and medicine if needed.
